Create an itinerary including Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project
Visit Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project for an educational and insightful tour of the turtle sanctuary and preservation project. This program, which started in 1988, aims to conserve local nesting sites, which are endangered by humans and predators, as well as monitoring the diminishing sea turtle activity in the area. The sanctuary has a large hatchery for rescued and collected eggs. After taking a tour and learning about all of the different species found in the area, you can take part in releasing the turtles into the ocean. The program relies solely on fundraising and donations, so if you choose to take part in the turtle release, you'll usually be asked to pay a small fee.

  • I would definitely recommend visiting this Sea Turtle Conservation Project! I went as a volunteer and it was the best experience. Dudley and his whole family were so welcoming and helped me settle in straight away which made such a positive impact on the whole experience. The volunteer house was clean and felt very homely. Food was amazing too! The project cares really well for all the turtles there and it is so amazing to be involved in releasing the babies into the wild when they hatch. I would definitely recommend visiting whether you go as a volunteer or visitor!
  • I had the opportunity to volunteer here for a week and it was the best experience of my life! I can guarantee the few adult turtles at the project are all extremely loved by all members of staff and are kept clean and looked after like Kings We released all baby turtles as soon as they hatched which is amazing The aim of the conservation is to release as many turtles as possible back to nature and to educate tourists and locals about the dangers of these beautiful and endangered animals. I would 100% advice to visit the Conservation and if you have more time I'd recommend you volunteer too! As it changed my life for the better
